Share, Embed, and Export Your Maps on Maptive
How do you share the powerful tools and insightful maps you create in Maptive with your clients or team? Maptive makes it easy to hit the share button and ensure your custom map is delivered with the correct permissions to the people who need to see it.
Maptive offers a number of options to display your interactive map after you’ve finished customizing it.
1. Share publicly or with teammates:
When sharing a map, you can select which individuals to give access to and take advantage of password protection to keep your data secure. You also have the option of posting your shared map publicly for anyone to see. If you make your map interactive, it gives your recipients the opportunity to make changes to the map.
2. Embed on a website:
By placing a code on your site, Maptive makes it easy for you to embed customized Google Maps. Your map won’t be a static screenshot, but rather an interactive tool on your website. Create a store locator map or display where your products can be purchased.
3. Export or print your map:
In cases where a hard copy is necessary, the general export function enables you to download an image of your map in a ready-to-print format. You can also insert the map image into presentations and documents.
Benefits of Sharing and Embedding Maps
When sharing or embedding a map you have a wide range of display options: you can toggle which features you want available in your shared or embedded interactive map. For example, you can filter by salesperson so each person on your sales team can see only their own data. Another option is to enable the radius tool so customers can see how many of your stores are within a 10-mile radius.
From the shared/embedded map dropdown, you can hide the map title, search box, distance calculator, show my location, and map image export buttons.
Some features you can enable on shared/embedded maps include the following:
- Display a search box.
- Show the distance calculator.
- Share location.
- Include map export buttons.
- Replace the grouping tool with a legend.
- Enable key features like the filter or grouping tools.
- Give users zoom control.
You can also allow your team members to see and edit the map in the same way the owner can, with the exception of deleting the map or sharing it with other team members. The map owner has the ability to revoke access at their discretion.
